Stylishly blending elements of pop, R&B, electronica and trip hop, Attxla has managed to lead with both an impressive production style and a brilliantly heartfelt, softly soulful brand of songwriting.
The album Ebb quite beautifully underlines the mood implied by its title and artwork. Smooth and creative set-ups accompany deeply emotional lyrics and an equally passionate array of performances, showcasing an artist undoubtedly connected to the moment.
Mind Mend is a definite highlight, a warm and entrancing beat joins forces with a delicate, dreamlike array of synths and some organic elements to keep a sense of realness. Then you get a gorgeously poetic outpouring of ideas and revelations, intimate and honest.
Before this, I Did is something of a favourite for its level of space and purity. The voice is laid a little more bare, the moment builds up slowly, weaving its way around you in a manner that feels reminiscent of some of the most professionally crafted and ambient soundscapes around.
Like I Do is another that stands out, a more energetic moment of classic rhythm and soul that captures your attention with ease.
Really beautiful work, an easy project to lose yourself in for an hour or so. The details and the underlying intentions unite flawlessly.
